A well-stocked pantry, full of versatile, useful ingredients means you’re always ready to whip up a healthy meal in a matter of minutes.
Whether stocking up on staples or avoiding the latest onslaught of snow, a prepared pantry will enable you to sustain your family throughout any weather.
One of the most resourceful ingredients in your pantry is corn oil. Its versatility extends to cooking, baking and sautéing. Good for your pantry and good for your heart, it contains plant sterols, which can help block cholesterol absorption in the body. In fact, corn oil contains 40 percent more plant sterols than canola oil and four times more than olive oil.
